Cameron C.

Nashville, TN

About Cameron

Cameron is a musician, teacher, and worship leader. He recently moved from Anaheim, CA 9 years ago to achieve a Bachelors Degree in Commercial Music at Belmont University and now resides in Nashville, TN.

Since 2004 I have gigged, recorded, and wrote/ co-wrote music in Nashville, TN. When I graduated in 2008 I went on the road for a couple years with an artist named Dave Hunt when I returned from the road I wasn't quite sure what to do next. I decided that I might enjoy teaching so for the last 4 years I have started small and built up my student base to around 30-35 students a week. I als
o teach high school music history and music theory at a home school tutorial and enrichment school in town. I simply use the college curriculum that I received and fine tune it for students from all levels of playing (basically like getting a college music lesson for much cheaper!)

"I have a passion and love for finding the best way to teach a new musical idea/technique/song, I am bold and will use the best way to teach you, based on your learning style."

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach multiple styles (jazz, pop, rock, latin, country, bluegrass, and classical) on the instruments listed on my page and love to teach songs, technique, and music theory in my lessons. I also throw in, if asked for, note reading, and ear training by transcription of staff notation and the Nashville number system.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Dedicated lesson space.
- Amplifiers for electric guitar and bass.
- Electric guitar, 2 Acoustic guitars, Classical Guitar, Ukulele, and Mandolin
- Audio Technica AT4040, Pre-Sonus TubePre, M-Audio Mobile USB DAC, Apple Mac mini, Logic DAW, and M1 Active Alesis Studio Monitors for Audio Recording.
-M-Audio Keystation Pro 88 for Piano playing.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring all curriculum. I expect each student to own the respective instrument that they are wanting to learn.

*** Specialties ***
I like to blend a basis of music theory in with my song instruction, and I teach blues, jazz, country, rock, bluegrass, and latin styles of music. Since I have experience as a working musician, having been playing rock music in live settings for about 8 years and also jazz music for 6 years with 4 years of jazz study at Belmont University, I would say I have gathered a wide range of musical styles and specialize in all of them.

For years, I've wanted to play guitar and had picked up a very basic understanding of how to play along the way. Cameron quickly identified the things I knew and adapted each lesson to where my skill level was at. He was great at incorporating the things I wanted to know with the things I needed to know, and built my lessons from the meager understanding I already had. A great experience, all around. Highly recommended!

Great Success

As a middle-aged adult just getting started learning an instrument, I was concerned about how well I would do. Cameron makes the learning curve easy and with practical homework assignments along the way, immediate feedback is assured. Highly recommended

Michael M.

Waverly, TN

About Michael

I've been giving private voice lessons for almost twenty years, successfully guiding students from rough-and-ready to really-refined. I've worked with some outstanding voice teachers, from my undergraduate work (1995 Bachelor of Music, UT Chattanooga) and graduate studies (2004 Master of Music, Southwestern Seminary) to my colleagues at Southwest Baptist University (Bolivar, MO, 2004-2007), Tennessee Temple University (Chattanooga, TN, 2007-2010), and Bryan College (Dayton, 2010).

As a performer, I've appeared in several operas over the years, as well as hundreds of choral and solo performa
nces and engagements, from local church mini-concerts to overseas tours. I've sung almost every type--classical, gospel, contemporary, pop, even jazz and blues--and am excited at any opportunity to help people get the most out of their God-given gifts.

Justin W.

Franklin, TN

About Justin

Hello! My name is Justin, a Christian musician that recently moved to the Nashville/Brentwood area from Michigan. I'm a pianist, guitarist and bassist that loves performing, teaching, learning, and above all enjoying life. When I'm not working on music, I'm usually found biking or running through the hills of southern Nashville. I love nature and all of the opportunities that it gives us to explore and learn!

I started my formal music education when I was in the third grade, taking classical piano lessons at my parents’ request. I progressed steadily but never felt truly connected to w
hat I was doing. Two years later, I was introduced to pop piano music through the worship band at my church. I learned to play by ear and read chord charts, taking my abilities far beyond the reach of classical piano. By the time that I reached high school, I was playing piano, guitar and bass as well as singing and acting. By my senior year, music had consumed so much of my time that sports were pushed to the side. I loved it!

Before I knew it, I was being pressured into picking a college. I had planned on going to school for Computer Science, but knew that music was my passion. While the money would have been great, sitting in a cubicle just isn’t my style. I decided upon Cornerstone University, a small Christian school in Grand Rapids, MI. For two years, I studied piano, voice and guitar in the school’s Contemporary Christian Music program. The program was great, but I needed a more competitive environment that only a larger school could offer.

In the fall of 2008, I transferred to Grand Valley State University and loved it! My teachers were great, the other students were supportive, and overall there was a culture of learning and growth. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Piano Performance from Grand Valley in April of 2011. I decided to take the summer off of working and enjoy the sunshine, then moved to the Nashville area in November of 2011. I’m currently serving as Worship Leader for a church in Nashville.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that every student is unique, therefore each lesson should also be unique. By understanding the student's motivation to study music and play an instrument, we can work together to set goals that will set the student up for success.

For piano, I prefer to use either the Bastien or Alfred series, depending on the student's goals, experience, and age. For guitar or bass, it depends on which style(s) of music the student would like to learn. I have plenty of resources available, so the sky is the limit. No matter which instrument you study, the ability to play properly is important from the very first lesson!

Above all, learning music should be fun! Life is about finding the balance between work and play - for me, music does that perfectly. What started as a simple hobby has turned into a wonderful career. With time and practice, it's amazing how much this small hobby can enrich your life!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Quiet home studio with seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
While in college, I studied classical voice and piano, as well as a few semesters of guitar. During that time, I held positions as both a classical singer and a pianist at churches in town.

On the side, I specialize in pop and rock music. Before college, most of my piano experience was playing with bands, pit orchestras, coffee shop duets, etc.

Classical music is invaluable, but I realize that most students are more interested in learning how to play contemporary music. As a young musician that grew up playing what he heard on the radio, I'm able to incorporate classical music and technique with modern theory and aural skills. Once you have all of those basics, the student will easily be able to learn a variety of styles of music.

Cesar M.

Spring Hill, TN

About Cesar

Cesar first musical adventures started very early. In elementary school, the school faculty noticed Cesar's aptitude while testing for music skills. He was chosen to attend a local gifted program.

Soon after, he met his first true love, the Guitar. The ensuing fever which struck Cesar was unlike anything he had ever experienced. "Obsession" didn't even touch the tip of the iceberg. Cesar would learn half of the songs on one CD in a single day! All of his spare time was spent in his room, learning everything he could about the guitar.

It's that passion that brings Cesar to teach. Seein
g every individual's face light up as they proficiently play their favorite passage from a song is such a reward for Cesar. His teaching style can be described as a combination of technique and motivation to keep each student interested, whether it's learning a new style or mastering their favorite song on the radio. Cesar believes that learning guitar CAN be fun and exciting!

Both of my kids were bit hesitant to return for guitar lessons because they didn't have good experience in the past. Now it has been over 2 years and a smooth sailing..Very happy kids and always excited for their lessons. All the credit goes to Cesar. He works with them tirelessly, makes learning fun for all, no stress environment, works around with our schedules as much as possible..we never had any issue what so ever..Kids practice at home because they enjoy it more than ever..getting better class by class...And parents are pleased because not only kids are learning but energy well spent...(did I say money well spent ..hahaha) THANKS CESAR!!

As a student of Cesar's for about 5 years, I can honestly say he is the best guitar teacher (and player) around. Cesar has a humble and caring personality; someone who is genuinely excited to teach and improve your guitar playing. In each lesson, he takes his time to ensure that you fully understand and comprehend what is being taught. He methodically chooses songs and guitar exercises for each lesson to compliment your preffered styles and challenge your techniques. At the end of each lesson, he records the taught material, so that you can master it without forgetting what you have learned. Learning guitar from Cesar has converted my potential into talent!

Anna C.

Nashville, TN

About Anna

I received my undergrad and master's from the University of South Carolina, and writing and history are my two great passions in life. I am always seeking to read and learn new ideas, and I love to share knowledge with others! I have taught logic to college students, swimming and flute to children, and worked as an PhD academic coach - so I enjoy working with all ages and levels of experience. History and writing are especially exciting subjects to tutor in because they are often taught in terribly boring ways; helping others to discover the joy of these subjects is a reward unto itself.


I also love playing the flute and swimming - and have enjoyed giving lessons in both areas to others. When I am not doing any of the above activities, I enjoy hiking, cooking, reading, and researching new ideas.
